Apple Music is a streaming music service. Now it owns over 100 million songs in lossless audio. However, although you can download Apple Music songs to your local device, all Apple Music songs are protected. They are not saved in a plain format like MP3, so you couldn’t listen to the downloaded Apple Music songs on the devices that Apple unauthorized.

What’s more, users can only listen to Apple Music only within the three-month free trial period or by paying the monthly fee to subscribe to the service. As a result, if you want to stream Apple Music songs forever on your PC/Mac, we advise you to download Apple Music songs in plain formats like MP3. In this case, you have to use a third-party tool.
